SYNOPSIS ^

    use Bio::Assembly::IO;

    $in  = Bio::Assembly::IO->new(-file=>"<inputfilename",
                                  -format=>'phrap');
    $out = Bio::Assembly::IO->new(-file=>">outputfilename",
                                  -format=>'phrap');

    while ( my $scaffold = $in->next_assembly() ) {
       # do something with Bio::Assembly::Scaffold instance
       # ...
       $out->write_assembly(-scaffold => $scaffold);
    }

    $in->close;
    $out->close;

DESCRIPTION ^

Bio::Assembly::IO is a handler module for formats in the Assembly::IO set (e.g. Bio::Assembly::IO::phrap).

APPENDIX ^

The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods. Internal methods are usually preceded with a _

new

 Title   : new
 Usage   : $stream = Bio::Assembly::IO->new( -file   => $filename,
                                             -format =>'format'    )
 Function: Returns a new assembly stream
 Returns : A Bio::Assembly::IO::Handler initialised
           with the appropriate format
 Args    : -file   => $filename
           -format => format

format

 Title   : format
 Usage   : $format = $stream->format()
 Function: Get the assembly format
 Returns : assembly format
 Args    : none

next_assembly

 Title   : next_assembly
 Usage   : $scaffold = $stream->next_assembly()
 Function: Reads the next assembly object from the stream and returns it.
 Returns : a Bio::Assembly::ScaffoldI compliant object
 Args    : none

next_contig

 Title   : next_contig
 Usage   : $contig = $stream->next_contig()
 Function: Reads the next contig or singlet from the stream and returns it.
 Returns : a Bio::Assembly::Contig or Bio::Contig::Assembly::Singlet
 Args    : none

write_assembly

  Title   : write_assembly
  Usage   : $stream->write_assembly($assembly)
  Function: Write the assembly object in desired format. This method calls
            write_header(), write_contigs() and write_footer() internally.
  Returns : 1 on success, 0 for error
  Args    : A Bio::Assembly::Scaffold object

write_header

  Title   : write_header
  Usage   : $stream->write_header($assembly)
  Function: Write the start of the assembly file. It can be called at any time,
            not when starting to write the assembly file. 
  Returns : 1 on success, 0 for error
  Args    : A Bio::Assembly::Scaffold object or ... (check the specific format
            driver for more details)

write_contig

  Title   : write_contig
  Usage   : $stream->write_contig($contig)
  Function: Write a contig object in the desired format.
  Returns : 1 on success, 0 for error
  Args    : A Bio::Assembly::Contig object

write_footer

  Title   : write_footer
  Usage   : $stream->write_footer($assembly)
  Function: Write the start of the assembly file.
  Returns : 1 on success, 0 for error
  Args    : A Bio::Assembly::Scaffold object or ... (check the specific format
            driver for more details)

_load_format_module

 Title   : _load_format_module
 Usage   : *INTERNAL Assembly::IO stuff*
 Function: Loads up (like use) a module at run time on demand
 Example :
 Returns :
 Args    :

_guess_format

 Title   : _guess_format
 Usage   : $obj->_guess_format($filename)
 Function: guess format based on file suffix
 Example :
 Returns : guessed format of filename (lower case)
 Args    :
 Notes   : formats that _filehandle() will guess includes
           ace, phrap and tigr at the moment

_sort

    Title   : _sort
    Usage   : @sorted_values = $ass_io->_sort(@values)
    Function: Sort a list of values naturally if Sort::Naturally is installed
